How Did Miranda Lambert’s Parents Business Affect Her Childhood?


Growing up in her native state of Texas, you might assume Miranda Lambert had a childhood country as a turnip green. She did… sort of. As it turns out, she had pretty weird upbringing. Her parents were private investigators and their work sometimes involved Miranda. Then for a time they were homeless. Here are all the details on the upbringing that shaped Miranda Lambert into the woman she is today.

The Parents

Rick and Beverly Lambert are Miranda Lambert’s parents. And they definitely did not have 9-to-5 jobs while raising their now-famous daughter. County Fancast reported the story of Miranda’s childhood, which apparently came from a book. ” From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars written by Virginia Hanlon Grohl (mother of Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl) gives us insight into the childhood of one of country music’s brightest stars. Over the span of two years, Virginia decided to seek out other top musicians’ mothers to ask them about raising their now famous offspring. One of those mothers was Miranda Lambert’s mother, Beverly.”

And Virginia’s insights are pretty spectacular.
